I noticed that for the past several days, the video for Mascot Mickey, posted and available here last week, has been unavailable (ItsProgram Details page reads, “This movie is currently unavailable for download ...”). There’s been no “movie scenes” thumbnails during that time as well.

Do the admnins need me to repost Mascot Mickey? That might be preferable for me, since I have a new version with head and tail leaders that credit the Prelinger Archive, which I feel is the right thing to do. I will be glad to repost the file if it has somehow been lost or dropped. And: If I do so, will I need to fill out a whole entire new form for “Program Details”? (hope not. whatever.)

Thanks
L

Hey there,

Mascot Mickey is back up again now, sorry about that. The XML file was malformed because the quotation marks you used in the description were non-standard, so the website couldn't find it.

We really need to get a handle on this non-standard characters thing, because they certainly weren't _that_ crazy, heh. In the meantime, bear with us.

If you'd like to upload a fresh version with a new directory name and then get us to delete the old version (by hitting 'Report Error' on the old item and asking for it to be removed), you're welcome to - you'd need to do it from scratch, sorry about that, it's safest for data integrity reasons.

Thanks,
Simon.

Thanks for the prompt reply, the situation assessment and the suggestion on a course of action!

Wow, you guys are on the ball with the quick reply! Will probably repost although not for a few days...

cheers
